Turbo BBQ burns hotter at end

Very uneven heating. Burns hot at the end far from the valve. I have tried drillinog out the gunk from the holes closer to the valve, but it didn't help. There is a screw near the gas inlet, which might help and could be adjusted if I knew which way to turn it.

There is a larger groove in the rear of the burner to make it hotter in the back for searing. This is by design.

Buners will not Fully Light


A burner doesn't work Heating elements eventually burn out. Sometimes, when an element burns out, you can see that the coil burns in two, or blisters and bubbles.

When your heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too. Also see the "A burner works only intermittently" section, next.

Can I convert a NG Vermont Castings BBQ to Propane. moving and new house has no NG available. Model SCS 5005.


Unfortunately, Peter, for safety reasons, VC grills are not approved to be converted from one gas type to another. Each grill is manufactured, tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Converting it from LP to Natural Gas places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong as a result of the conversion. Further, you would notice a significant change in the heating ability and the lower flame height, when set on high. The reason for this, is that LP Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

I know you would be happy not having to refill the tank, but I think you would really disappointed in the performance of the grill, if converted to Natural Gas.

I hope this helps you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The flames are uneven, i have the ceramic v shaped covers fror the burners, not charcoal or rocks. the heat is all at the back, it gets very hot there and is corroding the burners and the ceramic...


What you have is a bad case of clogged burners. At least the ends closer to you. This will require removing & cleaning the burners and the venturi valves (part of each burner) to thoroughly clean them
This will also provide you a closeup inspection of all the burners for any accessive wear, or rust thru.

Once the burners are removed, use a brass bristle brush to clean the exterior of the burners and then gently yet firmly tap them on something that want damage them, Then turn them so the open end is down and any debris will fall out. Also clean the Venturi valve on each burner. It will be on the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. It will look like 2 slots (1 on each side) cut out of the burner tube. Spiders like to build nest in them. After you have completed all of that, reinstall the burners, turn the gas tank back on Very, Very Slowly and give them a test. You should see a significant difference.

Hope this helps you solve the burner problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

Gas burners heat unevenly


I had a similar problem. I took off the burner heat deflectors and seen gaping holes in the burner tubes. Get your model number and serial number and call Weber. Most Ducane grills have a 5 year warranty on the burner tubes. They will ship them free if under warranty!

Gas grill conversion


It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm

Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.

Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.
